Mitsubishi Power starts natgas turbine operation in Rayong, Thailand

(Reuters) - Mitsubishi Power, a subsidiary of Japanese company Mitsubishi Heavy Industries , has started operations of a natural gas turbine at a gas-fired power plant project in Thailand's Rayong province on March 31.

This natural gas turbine is the fifth of its kind of a total of eight to be delivered under a full turnkey 5,300-megawatt contract secured by Mitsubishi Power in 2018, it said in a statement on Wednesday.

The gas turbine units are to be used at the gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) thermal power generation plant in Rayong, as well as in Chonburi province, Thailand.

The plant in Rayong province is owned and operated by Gulf PD Company Ltd, a joint venture project by Mitsui & Co. Ltd and Gulf Energy Development PCL, one of Thailand's largest independent power producers.

Mitsui & Co had said in 2019 that electricity from the Rayong plant will be sold to state-owned Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) for 25 years under a long term contract.
